Infinity Mirror Clock From An Old Clock

Making an infinity mirror clock is a very fun process. Anybody can do it and once you finish it you will be amazed!
So lets get started!
Disassemble Old Clock
Disassemble the old clock, take the rim and drill an 8mm hole 1,5cm from its edge. We will need that hole to feed the wires from the led strip to the adapter through it.
Wood spacers
Place the one way mirror inside the rim, with the mirror facing in and then take your strips of wood and place them as shown in the picture, they act as spacers between the two mirrors. If you use wood place it in some water first for 10 minutes. This way it wont break as you bend it.
They must be a few mm wider than the led strip. At this point you will have to re drill the hole on the rim to penetrate the wood.
The LED Strip
Place the led strip inside the rim and connect the wires of the led strip to the power supply.
The Clock
Fit the clock mechanism on the second mirror (I bought a 5mm mirror and I had to glue the mechanism on it. If you buy a 3mm thick mirror you might be able to use its own nut!)
Place the clock hands on the mechanism, and place the mirror in the rim.
Finished
Use another wood strip to secure the whole structure.
Place the adapter behind the Clock and its all done!
Enjoy!

  • An old wall clock, the rim diameter of mine was 30cm

      Thank you for your comment, well the initial concept was to hide the power supply behind the clock and connect it to a power cable I already had hanging on the wall but the power supply was to bulky for that, so I ended up using an external molded 12V DC power supply with male jack that you can connect and disconnect from the clock. Unfortunately for now you can still see the cables, but my next infinity clock will be deeper so I can hide the power supply behind it.

    How much did the mirrors cost, cut and drilled? Keith

    This is so cool! I'm thinking maybe even just a mirror, without the clock? I have a nephew who's into space/scifi type stuff who would love something like that for his room. Hmmm, and Christmas is just around the corner. 😉
